Happy National Running Day!

Yesterday was National Running Day! (I actually didn't know until I saw the bajillion blog posts about it...heh).  But I shall celebrate none-the-less even if I'm a day late. I still don't/won't call myself a "runner"... but I am getting into the habit of running, slowly but surely.  It all started with the lovely Corrie Anne.  If you missed her guest post, be sure to go back and read it. 

No Pioneer Woman + {A Communion of Sorts}

Now I'm no Pioneer Woman, who got 48,000 comments on ONE BLOG POST (I left a comment myself to try to win an awesome turquoise pot...ha! No such luck.)  But, as I posted on Facebook yesterday, I have been overwhelmed with the number of visits/views/pins of my Strawberry Banana Greek Yogurt Bread and its Blueberry version...over 30,000 just this month!  I hope many of you have actually gotten the chance to make them and taste them for yourselves.  This excitement and pinning action piqued my interest. 

I'm a PRO + {PRObar Giveaway!}

Remember the Blend retreat, way back when?  If your memory is a little foggy, you should definitely go back and read this post...and this one:  an amazing weekend, with amazing ladies, doing amazing things! At this aforementioned retreat, I was a winner!  On the last morning after breakfast, they did a raffle and we all went home with something wonderful.  My prize happened to be an awesome PRObar hat that Dear Hubby prompty stole and an entire case of PRObars!  Cha-chinnnnnnng! 

The 5 H's: Humor, Habits, Hugs, Hope, & Haydn

I mentioned awhile back that I wanted to do a couple new fun things with the blog - and one of those is to bring some outside perspectives (every once in awhile) on what others believe to be the essentials for a happy healthy life.  Afterall, that's the goal of this blog!!  I am soooooo excited to bring the next post in the series to you, from my blogger friend Corrie, a fellow Coloradan.  She is one of the first bloggers I started following when I was starting out.  I was immediately d ...

Running, Playground Strength Training & Lunges, oh my!

I started off my long weekend right with some serious exercise!  Afterall, I have some new goals to hit.  And in order to hit them, I need to focus on healthy clean eating and moving MORE! Since I was by myself with Babycakes, I didn't get many pictures of ME doing the exercises, but I did get a lot of cute shots of Babycakes copycatting mommy :)  Here she is trying slightly elevated pushups - ...

Life, Running, + 7 pounds of Blueberries

These are my new sneaks. --> I love my purple shoes.  I love my bright purple laces even more.  Dear hubby and I went to REI this weekend because I had a giftcard AND a 20% off coupon- and this is what I walked out with.  These running shoes are made by Brooks and are made of that super breathable mesh material.  Supposedly they're the most "cushy" of the mesh shoes though, says the shoe saleslady.  I took them out for an innaugural run on Sunday, and loved them!  If I am going to be serious (which I am!!) about those new goals I set, new sneaks, consistent runs, and less baked goods will do me good!

Blend Part 1 + {From Obese to Healthy}

As many of you know, this weekend was the Blend Retreat in Boulder, CO:  a retreat for healhy living bloggers to meet in person, and enjoy good food, exercise, and conversation.  It was everything I'd hoped it'd be...and more!  I met some amazing women, learned a thing or two about blogging (since almost all of them have been doing this a lot longer than I have!), and got a well-needed break from the craziness of "normal life."  The retreat couldn't have been in a more beautiful spot - Chauta ...

Guest Post - Oatmeal After Spinning!

I mentioned awhile back that I wanted to do a couple new fun things with the blog - and one of those is to bring some outside perspectives (every once in awhile) on what others believe to be the essentials for a happy healthy life.  Afterall, that's the goal of this blog!!  I am soooooo excited to bring this first post in the series to you, from my blogger friend Lauren.  I haven't been in this "blogosphere" very long, but from the first moment I "met" Lauren, she was such an encouraging ...
